This book examines the relationships between society and material culture: the interaction between people and things. Tim Dant argues that the traditional approach to material culture has focused on the symbolic meanings of objects, largely overlooking the material impact that objects have on everyday life in late modernity. Dant resists the now well-established model of consumption as the principal relationship with "things'' in our lives. Using the motor car as a recurring theme, he shows how we confront our society through material interaction with the objects that surround us. Materiality.
